How to tell if this Golden Polish is a Roo or Pullet - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Looking at the tail I would now say roo. The crest also looks a little more scruffy in your new pics. Has your bird had a go at crowing yet? Sometimes though they don't start to crow until 6 months. There is no rhyme or reason when it comes to polish and they are all individuals.

No,he hasn't started yet. I was hoping for a pullet but he's still a beautiful bird.
Thank you sooooo much for your help and everybody else smile.png

Don't give up yet. They can be deceiving some even right up until they crow or lay an egg.

So I just wanted to update everyone on my beautiful Golden Polish it turns out that I have a pullet!! I got my first little white egg yesterday morning! I had already given up hope but she was acting rather weird the past 3 days. She was "squatting" a lot and thought it was rather odd for a roo plus I started to see little buds where the spurs would be on a Cockerel so I thought for sure I had a Cockerel. Within a couple of days she laid her first egg!she's my only one that lays white eggs now.
Just wanted to share the good news!!
